Ok now onto my review... I have a LiteOn CDRW 40x burner (on my old PC), Teac DVD+/CDRW combo burner and an LG-Hitachi 48x CDRW burner. Memorex media works flawlessly on all these burners! Music CDs that I made plays perfectly on all my components - 5-disc Sony caroussel from the early 90s, my DVD player from 2000 and the rest of my CD players in the house and not to mention my car's CD player. No problems at all.
The only problem I encountered was when I made VCDs using these disc. They "sometimes" wouldn't work on my Panasonic DVD/VCD player (year 2000). They would give me playback problems such as pixelation and audio skipping! But when using another brand, such as TDK or Fuji, I don't get these playback problems. The Memorex VCD would work on my dirt-cheat Apex though. Further, establishing the idea that media do have compatability problems.
Considering my hardware, the brands that gave me no problems at all were: TDK, Fuji and Maxell - they just work flawlessly on whatever I throw at them. I would put the Memorex up there with the other brands but they seem to be only good when it comes to music and data but now much on video projects. But since most people use their CDRs for music and data anyway, these CDRs are still a great buy in my opinion! I currently have TDKs and Memorexs.
I bought a spindle of 100 as the price seemed like a pretty good deal. I tried burning 20 of these. Out of that group of twenty, twelve were duds.
I am no audio expert by any means, and there may be some great reason why they didn't work with my system. Unfortunately, there was no warning indicating that they might not work well with certain types of computers. The system that I am using is a Dell that was new within the last few months.
I have also bought the Verbatim CD-Rs and had very good luck with them. I would caution buyers to consider buying a smaller quantity initially if they are thinking about buying the Memorex CD-Rs.
I've been using them for the past 6 years or so and I've recorded around 400+ cd-r's over the years and probably have only had maybe a dozen bad cd's.
Usually when you have a bad cd-r it is because I've gotten in such a hurry that I forget to turn off the screensaver that could cause problems in the recording of the cd (user mistake, not the cd-r). lol.
Advice for users that aren't too familar with recording cd-r's, try not to leave your screen saver on while recording, also try not to be doing other things on the computer at the same time as you are recording cd's. This will help ensure that your cd-r will record perfect 100% of the time.
The ones I got were actually made in India by a company called Moser-Baer. I think the widely varying reviews might be because some are made in China (much better quality) and some are made in India by Moser-Baer (REALLY terrible quality).
I've been burning CD's since CDR's first became available 20+ years ago (back then, the blanks cost $22 each!). These have the highest error counts BY FAR I have ever seen. Thousands of unrecoverable C2 errors...to the point of the drive shutting down with a failed burn message. And yes, I tried them on different drives and different computers...same dismal result.
Nero "CD Speed" rates the quality of just about all my burns on other brands at 95 or higher (usually 98). These junky things rate ZERO...every single one that I tired was ZERO! Drop-outs, clicks, pops, etc on every disc I tried to burn. Completely useless.
Stick with TY, or Verbatim if you want quality burns. And no, I don't work for any CDR company or distributor, and I almost never post a bad review here.
Buyer beware! If they are made in India, you will probably get the same useless junk.
So I'd have to say you will problably be OK with these, and if not selll them to a friend, they'll probably work for them, if they have another type of machine that is.
